Mary Burchill Maxson, the daughter of the owners, said her family watched with interest in the late 1950s as the home was being built in their Silver Lake neighborhood.
The project then sat unfinished for some time. When it became available through bankruptcy, Ms. Maxson’s parents, Philip and Jacklyn Burchill, bought the home, in 1974. They worked with Mr. Lautner to complete the home, then moved in 1976.
